    I have been teaching math here at Mountain Ridge HS for the last 23 years.  I am also the Head Wrestling coach.
    I am a High School graduate of Holbrook HS and received my degree from Arizona State University with a Masters from NAU.
    An interesting fact about me is that I have 2 kids, a 15 year old and an 12 year old who both have the same exact birthday as me.
